A Sci-Fi building material of the future?

Aircrete is simply concrete with bubbles. Regular concrete that we use for our roads, basements, and foundations traditionally made from Portland cement. This combination hardens into a highly dense material with impressive compressive strength. The addition of iron rebar adds additional structural integrity.

Aircrete reduces or eliminates the traditionally used aggregate. Instead of including gravel or other coarse aggregate types, aircrete relies on incorporating premade foam pieces that essentially add bubbles of airspace within the concrete mix. Instead of foam, another option is mixing certain types of reactive substances into the wet cement mix. The chemical reaction creates gas bubbles within the cement and water slurry to harden with empty cavities.
